to start paying taxes in both states. ohio? >> ohio remains beyond romney's grasp at this point in large part because obama is doing better there with white voters than he has across the country, and in the northeast of ohio, the auto bailout made a difference i. it is so much of a problem that rob portman, introducing romney in defiance, ohio in front of a huge crowd, said that "we have got to talk about this auto bailout tonight." they are still trying to explain. >> can romney win without ohio? >> yes, but it will be a tough one to reach. but it is still very close race. >> virginia? >> virginia will still probably end up in obama's camp. >> i look at the polls, and romney is up on average -- >> you can take your calls in virginia, because another poll shows obama is up in virginia. even with the heavy onslaught by romney, it still shows the northern virginia area still pretty much supports barack obama. >> new hampshire could be in play. >> new hampshire traditionally was a republican state. it only presidentially became a democratic state recently . >> then bartlet came along. >> th
in virginia and ohio that they will have to start paying taxes in both states. that's run the table at a grant states, mark -- let's run the table of battleground states, mark. >> ohio remains yond romney's grass at this point, a large part because obama is doing better with white voters that he is across the country, in large part in the north and west of ohio and northeast of ohio, the industrial belt where the auto bailout made a difference. it is so much of a problem for romney there that rob portman on thursday, introducing romney in defiance, ohio, to a huge crowd, said, "we have got to talk about this auto bailout thing tonight." they are still trying to explain it. >> can romney win without ohio? >> yes, but it is a tough one to reach. if obamacare is ohio, he will carry it was gone -- if obama carries ohio, he will carry wisconsin and it will be a difficult reached for romney. >> a virginia? >> virginia will still probably end up in obama's camp. >> i just look at the polls when we started the program. romney is up by one pnt or two. >> you can pick your polling and in virginia, becau
measures, these are really tough. the first one. temporary taxes to fund education. that sounds great. guaranteed local public safety funding initiative. it's a constitutional amendment. i don't feel that i should be amending the constitution. it says it increases taxes on earnings over $250,000 for seven years and sales taxes by one quarter cent for four years. how much does it increase taxes over $250,000? >> it's a graduated scale. a little bit 250, more for 500, more over a million. >> that's not even in here. >> i'm giving you the answer. >> how are voters? >> this is the voter guide. >> it's in that? the phone book version. >> i brought that for you. in fairness this is printed front and back. i have it printed one side of the page. it's about half this side. but if you go through it, all of that is explained. >> it's just unbelievable. >> here's the deal. arnold had a temporary tax that as compared when he left off. >> i have no problem with taxation -- >> you and i will pay more, the average guy will only pay 1/4 of a cent on sales tax. >> my instinct is to vote for it. >> thi
with our most significant issue with the economy, it's cut taxes and compensate for that with other things. but that compensation does not cover all of the cuts intended or the new expenses associated with defense. >> cenk: so interesting intelligent comments about mitt romney foreign policy and domestic policy. but john sunuunu has a different idea why colin powell is backing barack obama. >> frankly when you take a look at colin powell. you have to wonder if that is based on issues or is there a slightly different reason for preferring barack obama. >> what reason would that be. >> when you have someone from your own race who is president obama, i applaud powell for standing for him. >> cenk: the neo-cons and the fact that powell is crossing the republicans--no, no, no. this is what he sees. he sees colin powell and barack obama, look at that, they're both black. that's a classic case of projection. he thinks us republicans we vote based on race. if there is a black quite versus a white guy we vote for the white guy. that's what cool bin powell is doing, too. no colin powell has a brain.
the de jour, reconvenes a week later, bush tax cuts expire december 31st, the viled sequester kicks in on january 2nd, the debt ceiling wit need to be raised in mid-february and the current funding expires march 27th. bipartisan will certainly need be needed but -- certainly be needed but when will it come? >> romney is more of a flexible flopper than obama he has more influence over the intraj gent element in the ecase house republicans. he's likely to get big stuff down. or to paraphrase mitt's tiger blood will enable him to be more bipartisan because he doesn't believe in anything but winning. joining the panel, authors of the book "it's even worse than it looks" a great read and an important read, senior fellow at the brookings institution, thomas man and norman onstein a collar at the american enterprise institute. always a pleasure to have you on the show. >> great to be back, alex. >> thomas or actually norm, why don't we start with you on this. in terms of the david brooks endorsement or making the case for a mitt romney being the guy to get stuff done, how likely do you thi
of his more mathematically challenged promises like that $5 trillion in tax cuts or capping federal spending at 20% of the gdp. paul krugman wrote, romney's plan is a sham. it's a list of things he claims will happen with no description of the policies he would follow to make those things happen. if you refuse to let the media ask you questions, you never have to worry about giving them answers. john walsh is editor at large for "salon" and author of "what's the matter with white people." and douglas brinkley is editor of "rolling stone." he conducted an oval office interview with president obama. what do we make of this whole thipg, th thing, this strategy, first of all with you, douglas, this whole idea of a president, it clicks with me as sort of the dewy campaign of 1948 where the guy basically -- as manchester wrote in "the glory and the dream," he had every means of communication to say anything he wanted, and he had nothing to say. also the nixon campaign of '68 where he hunkered down with his big lead and said absolutely nothing, including no interviews. >> i was thinking of
romney had ent so much time in virginia and ohio that they will have t to start payiying taxes in both states. lelet's run the table of the battleground states and where they seem to be at this point. ohio. >> ohio remains beyond romney's grasped at this point in large part because obama is doing better there with white voters than he is across the country in large part in the northwest ohio and northeast ohio, which is the industrial belt, ere the auto bailout really made difference. its so much of a problem for romney there that rob portman on thursday night as he introduced romney in defiance, ohio for a huge cro is said "we have got to talk about this auto thing tonight." eyre still trying to explain that. >> ken romney eastwind without oh? -- can romney win witho ohio? >> yes, but it will be a tough one to reachch. but it is still very close race. >> virginia? >> v virginia will still probably end op in obama's camp. >> i look at the polls when we started the program and romney is up on average -- >> there is another poll that shows that obama is up in virginia. but he has been ru
. that's basically what he's saying now. >> grover norquist is the no tax guy, made clear that the right wing of the party expects to call the shots. this is brazen, but let's listen to what was said and romney never opposed what he heard here. >> focus on electing the most conservative republican who can win in each house seat, and the most conservative republican who can win in each senate seat, and then pick a republican with enough working digits to handle a pen to become president of the united states. >> now, he's backing romney. romney signed the pledge for this guy. doesn't he ever call him out and say, you just made a fool out of me? you said i'm just going to be a robot. he never complains. >> no, he hasn't complained. >> he wanted norquist to believe he was going to be the guy with the pen. >> exactly. so you guys just pass it and i will sign it. now, would there come a point when mitt romney would actually challenge the right wing -- the far right wing of the party? there has not been a moment like that, not even remotely in this campaign. if you can remember one -- >> shanno
think what matters once you're in office is almost always issues like taxes and spending. >> i disagree. >> the others are great campaign issues. the supreme court certainly matters a lot. >> it matters. >> i agree. >> if you weigh one supreme court appointment against the day in, day out battle on capital hill. >> i think the supreme court appointment wins on that. >> you do? economic matters also matter. >> there's a duration effect. i always think about it this way. bill clinton, all right, we all love bill clinton now in retrospect even though at the time a lot of us were very from us freightstraighted with him. everything he did vanished as soon as he was gone. everything that was not awesome, which is the defense of marriage act, which is the efficient death penalty act which is an immigration bill. >> chris, you know something, 30 years of inequality has anything to do with how people have governed in washington? >> oh, i absolutely do. i think it's the fundamental thing that drives people. >> then you just confirmed my point that you should vote for romney. it's economic issues.
. this is a candidate now who realizes if he gets loose on a talk show, they're going to ask him about his taxes, they're going to ask him about bain capital, and those issues have somehow died. you don't hear the press talking about it much. so i think they see it's just a sea filled with land mines if romney gets out there and tries to freelance q & as. thank you, doug and joan. >>> how long would it take to you watch all the ads the obama and romney campaigns have run? just in ohio alone? this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> back to "hardball." now to the "sideshow." nancy pelosi was on "the daily show" last night with her own spin on romnesia. romney's tendency to forget what he said last year. pelosi brought up the failed personhood amendment in mississippi. >> governor romney had endorsed personhood amendment in mississippi. >> no, i remember that. >> even the people of mississippi rejected that position. >> well, romney also rejected that position as well. >> well, the president calls it romnesia. i have my own what i call mittology. >> anyway, also taking on the late night comedy sc
the fiscal cliff which would trigger tax hikes and spending cuts two short months from now. he says he wants to work with congressional republicans on it. >> i've said to folks, i'll go to capitol hill. i'll wash john boehner's car. i'll walk mitch mcconnell's dog. i'll do whatever is required to get this done. >> president obama heads to new hampshire a bit later today for a stop in nashua. vice president biden is scheduled to hold an event in lynch burg, virginia. >>> now we go to ohio where nbc's ron mott is on that bus tour with paul ryan. hello to you ron again. where are you in the many stops on that bus tour today? >> reporter: hey there, alex. i've got to get my back stretched out. we've got five stops as you mentioned here today. three more tomorrow. eight in total. 400 plus miles over the next two days with paul ryan. right now we're in janesville, ohio. just wrapping up a speech here. a lot of people are wondering why so much attention on ohio? this state may be the one that decides who wins this election. it's probably more important for governor romney than perhaps for the presi

taxes and not cut any services like for example the military. that s the question we have to answer and the only way we can get to it is to really look at democrats and republicans, not blame each other but sit down and literally look at this. the supercommittee had a try. democrats, republicans, they were not able to do it. this was the agreement that was done, the sequestration. i think if we are going to do cuts we ought to do that across-the-board where everybody has skin in the game and have cuts across the board to reduce the deficit. >> geraldo: congressman blackburn, did you -- >> let me say something there. because i support across-the-board cuts in discretionary spending. every year i run bills calling for 1, 2 and 5% across the board. what you have to realize is that this administration had gone in and made deep cuts into the -- our military services, into d.o.d. and then they did it again with the sequestration. doubled up on that. so the problem becomes you are cutting them more than everybody else. if you were to give them just what you were going to cut everyone else
the only piece of his plan that is real is this $5 trillion tax cut. $2 trillion in extra spending for the pentagon. no plan to pay for, it and deregulate wall street. this is what's going to move us forward, and that's not going to move us forward. >> i asked you this because in general closing statements, as you know, tend to turn back to the positive side and there is an argument that a candidate still is pounding his adversary at this point is worried. >> well, candy, if you have been traveling with governor romney, he is pounding us pretty hard as well because this is a close election. it's a choice. there is no doubt that what americans have in front of them is a choice between policies that will, you know, emphasize education, research and development, clean energy technology, manufacturing and the kinds of things that will grow this economy, create good jobs, and give people the training and education they need to fill them. that's the president's plan. governor romney's plan is to go backwards to the trickle down theory of the past. that is a choice people face. we're goin
with this mitt romney who is more concerned about making sure that the wealthy don't pay their taxes than the needs of this country are really taken care of. >> cenk: and one more thing about this, you know, as you look at mitt romney from back then through the lens of what you know today about how much he has changed all of his positions, do you think that maybe you were duped that he was not a moderate guy? that he was just telling you what he thought you wanted to hear, what the voters of massachusetts wanted to hear what the olympic committee the federal government wanted to hear just to get the success as he defined it at that moment? >> certainly, my first impression was--and that was over a period of a couple of years was that he really was that moderate reasonable person, as was his wife ann romney. now when i see a man who has been listening to his handlers, but you can't blame it on his handlers. he has chosen to do this. the conclusion that anybody has to draw--just look at his public record. don't listen to me, who has dealt with him personally. he has been all over the place
's spending so much more militarily and not taxing rich folks. >> absolutely. >> he's telling them that and saying he has no plans to overturn roe v. wade on the same time that it's on paper and ryan certainly -- a choice of a vice presidential candidate certainly says it. this is the most right wing in his position whether he believes it or not, i don't know. but also the least honest. he is the least honest mosts plastic candidate i have seen in my lifetime. >> wow. gloria steinem, it was really great to have you on this show tonight and thank you so much for your time and your service. >> thank you. >>> coming up, the right wing attacks the hero in a jealous rage. they can't handle chris christie praising president obama and you won't believe what they are saying about him. >>> plus, the investigation into the romney campaign training poll watchers to mislead. we're learning it's much bigger than we ever could have imagined. the new video is out. stay with us. new trident layers juicy berry + tangy tangerine is a thrilling, dual-flavored ride to mouth fun-town. but it's not like

that are going to generate 12 million new jobs. in fact, if anything mitt romney's policies of giving a huge tax break to the very, very wealthy, cutting most of the programs that everybody else depends on, turning medicare into a voucher system, all of these things actually may depress consumer confidence, reduce aggregate demand, and actually slow the economy down. >> i wish you wouldn't rely on facts, sir. we learned today that jobless claims were down last week and that chrysler has achieved its best sales in five years. home sales and median home prices look to be rebounding. consumer confidence is slowly going up. perhaps mr. romney would like to take credit for all of those as well? is that right? >> i'm sure he would. the problem for mitt romney is the economy is getting better. consumer confidence is up. most people understand that. and so mitt romney all along the way, particularly over the last four or five months, has had to recalibrate his campaign. remember his campaign originally was based on the notion that the economy was in terrible shape, most people understood that and he was
